An Herbal Candle Spell for Abundance and Health
The Moon is in the sign of Taurus, a time of working for material resources so
let's combine the herbal information with the color and candle information for a Thursday spell. You will need a few specific supplies for this spell, but the plants are common and easy to locate. You may not have to loook very far - maybe not any further than your own back yard.
* 2 deep blue votive candles (you can switch these to purple)
* 2 green votive candles
* 4 votive cups
* A lighter or matches
* A sprig of honeysuckle (flower or foliage)
* A few leaves of fresh mint
* A small cluster of fresh pine needles
* A 6 x 6-inch square of green or blue fabric
* A 12-inch piece of ribbon (try a Jupiter color which can be royal blue, purple, or green) to tie the
fabric up into a charm bag.
* A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell.
Arrange the candles in their holders in a neat circle. Next, lay the foliage on the inside of the candle ring. Take your time and make this look as festive as you can, just make sure to keep the herbal ingredients well away from the flames. Then ground and center yourself, and repeat the following spell three times:
"Jupiter's bright colors are in these candles four
Money and abundance they will bring to my door
Add some mint, pine and honeysuckle to this Witch's spell
I call for health and prosperity, and all will be well."
Now I want you to imagine yourself surrounded by a bright blue-green halo of light. Envision that this light protects you, encourages healing, promotes abundance and invites prosperity into your life. Hold this imagery in place for a few moments.
Close the spell with this line:
"For the good of all, with harm to none
By color and herb, this spell is done!"
Let the candles burn until they go out on their own. When the candles are finished, the herbs will be empowered and ready to go. Tuck the herbal ingredients into the center of the blue or green cloth, and then gather up the edges. Tie the bundle closed with the ribbon. And there you have it - an instant charm bag!
Keep the prosperity charm bag with you, in your pocket or purse, for one week. If you care to re-empower the charm bag, repeat the spell the following Thursday. Just place the bag in the center of the candle ring and you're good to go.
